According to Professor Brian Ford’s new book, “Secret Weapons: Technology, Science, and The Race to Win World War II”, Adolf Hitler was the subject of a “hormone plot” created by the Brits in an attempt to make him less aggressive.

British spies concocted a devious plan to smuggle estrogen into Hitler’s food, believing that the female sex hormone would reduce his rage and bring an end to the war. Professor Ford explains that estrogen was chosen because it’s tasteless, and has a slow and subtle effect. Therefore, Hitler’s food testers wouldn’t identify the substance.

“Research had showed the importance of sex hormones- they were beginning to be used in sex therapy in London,” says Ford, a fellow at Cardiff University.

“The Allies hoped to smuggle estrogen into Hitler’s food and change his sex so he would become more feminine and less aggressive,” he continued.

The estrogen plot playfully referred to as “Her Hitler” was given serious consideration.

“Hitler had testers who used to taste his meals so there was no mileage in putting poison in his food because they would immediately fall victim to it. Sex hormones were a different matter.”

“They affected you only if you took them for months on end, so no one would have realized the hormones were in the food,” Prof. Ford says.
